Given the declining trust and exhaustion many have with our political process, FixUS believes that deep and meaningful citizen engagement will be required to guide necessary changes to help overcome our divisions. To that end, FixUS engaged citizens across the country to get their feedback on a host of ideas to improve our democracy. We hosted multiple virtual focus groups with representation from 22 different states, with the topic being a recent report, Our Common Purpose, published by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences’ Commission on the Practice of Democratic Citizenship, which identified 31 recommendations to reinvent American democracy for the 21st century. Check out our short report below.
